Salt Facial

Looking for a facial that truly makes a difference? The Salt Facial and its ability to address inflammation, aging, stretch marks and scars may be exactly what your skin needs! From SaltMed, The Salt Facial is the only Class-2 medical-facial technology in the world. The Salt Facial offers 3 unique treatments that can be applied in different combinations with topical elements selected by your Ava MD provider to treat dull, worn out, and acne-prone skin conditions.

What is a Salt Facial?

The Salt Facial is a multi-therapy procedure performed using a streamlined device. This facial is delivered in three steps: salt resurfacing, aesthetic ultrasound, and LED medical-grade phototherapy. Together, these steps remove layers of dead skin, increase absorption of topical treatments, and nourish the skin at every level.

The SaltFacial is unparalleled in its ability to improve the state of your skin. The Salt Facial is gentle and it can be used for all skin types. The Salt Facial is an innovative, noninvasive treatment option that works to correct your skin’s texture, tone, and quality while maintaining your skin’s natural beauty.

How Salt Facials Differ From the Other Facials at Ava MD

Not every facial can offer a big impact without harsh chemicals, seasonal restrictions, or limited use by skin type. The Salt Facial manages to do it all while the ultrasound gives your Ava MD provider the opportunity to combine this facial with other treatments at Ava MD.

This unique treatment affords you the flexibility to work with one of our expert providers to design a comprehensive skincare plan. The Salt Facial at Ava MD offers the best elements of many of our other facials in one treatment: a purifying effect like that of our Acne Facial, gentle resurfacing like the Diamond Peel, and it’s engineered like the Stem Cell and DNA facials which work with our body to rejuvenate your skin.

What Does the Salt Facial Treat?

The gentle Salt Facial’s technology and treatment protocol encourage versatile and creative applications without compromising patient safety or limiting the potential of impact. Our Ava MD providers have used the Salt Facial to treat many common skin conditions and concerns, including:

These common issues are difficult to manage alone, but often show up in pairs or groups. The Salt Facial is invaluable in these exact circumstances, offering a balanced treatment that can precisely address each issue amongst many skin types with great success.

What to Expect During Your Salt Facial

The Salt Facial is one of our most popular facials because it generates beautiful results through a unique three-step process:

Step 1: Salt Resurfacing

Salt crystals are naturally antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, which makes them an ideal medium for exfoliation. Salt resurfacing works to gently remove the outer layer of damaged skin. The use of a positive pressure system allows your Ava MD provider to ensure you are receiving a careful, continuous exfoliation without leaving your skin damaged and sensitive. Your gently exfoliated skin is now ready to receive your custom ultrasound treatment.

Step 2: Aesthetic Ultrasound

As the first step of the Salt Facial is about drawing out dead skin, this step is about supplying your skin with the nutrients at every layer. The Aesthetic Ultrasound encourages your skin to create collagen by gently disrupting skin cells using ultrasonic cavitation, known as lipolysis, to send ultrasonic waves that disrupt the tissue causing fat cells to break apart and leave the dermis.

This creates the perfect opportunity for nutritious treatments to be absorbed as circulation and collagen are stimulated. The production of collagen reinforces the integrity of the extracellular matrix, a membrane responsible for maintaining the series of complex and delicately refined interactions on which skin functions depend.

Step 3: Medical-grade LED Therapy

The natural properties of multi-wave light therapy result in curbing inflammation, soothing redness, killing superficial and deep bacteria, stimulating collagen production, and promoting healing. Though typically pain-free, some patients have reported a stinging sensation in areas with thinner or more sensitive skin.

During your phototherapy, blue light works to eliminate bacteria and soothe inflammation. The red light encourages collagen product and healing to prevent bruising. Enjoy the final stage of your treatment under the warm glow.


The results of a Salt Facial begin to show right away. Post-treatment skin is left plump, detoxified, nourished, and hydrated. Clients with aging skin can expect clearer, toned skin that continues to improve with each therapy session. Active acne issues are reduced and will continue to resolve with follow-up treatments.

The Salt Facial is also a great option for men and women looking to diminish the appearance of scarring, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, and hypervascular skin conditions. To maintain the results of a Salt Facial, we recommend that clients visit Ava MD once a month for treatment.

This noninvasive treatment is a team and patient-favorite for a good reason: it’s a safe and effective treatment that also leaves you with the benefit of natural antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, making it an ideal candidate for your professional skincare regimen.
